The Disaster blends innovative tech with hard-as-nails construction for a jib deck that can attack anything in its path. It features our most relaxed camber and a soft flex so it feels chill on the run-in and is easy to press. This season we updated the nose shape and giving it more kick for skate like feel.

Terrain

Park

Resort

Pow

What’s this board’s natural home? Full send in the park? Elbows down on the trails? Or chucking roosters somewhere off grid?

Flex

2

Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge. Choose your poison.

Float Ratio

58

Maximum volume for surfy vibes in the pow, or a smaller surface area for nimble freestyle performance. This number is calculated with length, width, 3D shape and surface distribution.

Outline Shape

Twin

Boards that are shaped for the park are designed with maximum center base width and minimal side base uplift. Creating a stable landing platform with confidence boosting forgiveness and next level agility. Think about your tricks not about your edges.

Nose Sidebase Uplift

Low

The gradual side base uplift in the nose determines how the board will behave on snow. most effected are the edge to edge performance and the uplift generated when riding powder.

Tail Sidebase Uplift

Low

The gradual side base uplift in the tail determines how the board will behave on snow. Any amount of uplift brings all the benefits of Triple Base Technology making opur boards more versatile then others.

Camber Profile

Low Camber

Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. higher is not always better...

3D Shape

3BT™ + Sidekick™

Combining the responsiveness of traditional tip-to-tail camber with the dynamic shaping properties of Triple Base Technology and the performance boosting Sidekick feature makes for a 3D snowboarding experience like no other.

Glassing

Bi-Ax
Lamination

A traditional two-way weave that is light, strong and playful; it keeps the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness, which is great for getting creative.

Woodcore

Core
Core

Full poplar with hardwood beech stringers to strengthen the boards backbone, reinforce the inserts and increase pop.

Base

Hyper
Glide S

Our standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when you keep it waxed.

Sidewalls

Shock Walls
Sidewall

This is our Urethane infused sidewall technology. ShockWalls smooth out your ride and are more resistant to impact.

Featuring

At the heart of every Bataleon is a combination of 3BT™ and positive camber. It’s an innovative solution to the profile puzzle that minimizes the potential for edge-catch without sacrificing ollie power or carving performance. From this starting point, we fine-tune each element according to the boards desired riding style.

Featuring

SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.

Bataleon disaster!

My new bataleon disaster is the sickest snowboard I’ve ever had, the weight is perfect and the bounce back it has is totally insane will always buy from bataleon!!

Side Kick Tech

Excellent decks. Their Side Kick tech is what has kept me coming back. This gives you just enough lift at your contact points to ride loose, have fun and not be worried about catching an edge when you are practicing flat 3s or 5s, pulling a tripod or any other butter tricks on the flats, yards before the lift.

Bataleon Disaster

The disaster is without a doubt the best freestyle board on the market ! (If you like soft boards) Rails, jibs, and jumps; the disaster does it all and does it with style. While it's main focus is the park, I ride this board across the whole mountain. Bombing groomers, thru the pow and trees; the disaster has done me right. Get this board and you won't be sorry.

Disaster 154

Went from a 156w Skate Banana to my 154 Disaster and love it. The disaster is so fun in the park and handles pretty much everything with ease. It gave me more confidence jibbing and pressing. Super fun board.

Disaster 153w

Short review: get it - it rips and is the perfect board to learn how to ride or learn new tricks at any skill level.

Longer review: Being a Level 3 snowboard instructor through AASI doesn’t mean you’re a great rider. It means you know how to ride at “the standard” according to group of people. After passing level 3, I realized most people don’t give a sh!t about posture, turn shape, fundamentals, & technical explanation. The main thing, most snowboarders care about is, riding park. The 153w Bataleon Disaster has allowed me to get back to the fundamentals of riding rails. And it’s helped me learn new tricks whilst mitigating the risk of catching my edge. It’s an amazing board that’s exceptional for all skill levels. I highly recommend it!
